The Crips also known as Original Crip Homies (OCH) are a primarily African-American gang.
In reality, they fight each other—for example, the Rolling 60s Neighborhood Crips and 83 Gangster Crips have been rivals since 1979.Initially, Crips leaders did not occupy leadership positions, but were recognized as leaders because of their personal charisma and influence.These leaders gave priority to expanding the gang's membership to increase its power.By 1971, a gang on Piru Street in Compton, California, known as the Piru Street Boys, was formed and associated themselves with the Crips as a set.After two years of peace, a feud began between the Piru Street Boys and the other Crip sets.
